Ever wonder what women were doing during the 1800s or what is known as the antebellum period of United States history? Men are well represented in our history books as they were the powerful, educated leaders of our country. Women, on the other hand, rarely had opportunities to tell their stories. Powerful stories of brave women who helped shape the history of the United States are revealed to students through journals, letters, narratives and other primary sources. Synthesizing information from the various sources, students write their impressions of women in the Northeast, Southeast, or the West during the Nineteenth Century.

This College and Career Awareness for Elementary and Middle School Students augments the Pre-College and Career Readiness Curriculum for Students and Their Families (2017, 2018) which was designed for primarily for high school students. Feedback from school counselors led to this development of materials for earlier grades. The current version includes activities and lessons for pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, elementary and middle school students. The new materials were developed and shared by the College Foundation of West Virginia (CFWV) and GEAR UP Washington State. Additionally, instructions for introducing students to the highly engaging online platform Whyville© were provided by Jen Sun, President of Numedeon. Whyville© is a virtual world designed for children as young as 8 years old which encourages self-directed exploration of ideas, careers, and community challenges.
Our final chapter in 2nd grade is all about history - how we study it and how we learn about places - especially our community. The authors recognized early on that it would be impossible for us to write a community history for every community in Michigan, so we continue with our study of two - a small town and a larger town. Our hope is that you‰Ûªll have students make connections between these two featured communities and their own. How are they alike? How are they different?

The collection of an archive of primary source materials will be an exciting component of a year-long American Studies class focusing on historiography and the use of primary sources. Students collect primary source materials from their families or local communities. In analyzing these primary sources, students examine the interplay between national, state, local, and personal history. Over a period of several weeks, students may produce a digital collection modeled on the Library of Congress' American Memory.Teachers and students from other states and localities may easily follow this model to create local history Memory Projects of their own. Teachers may choose to limit the lesson to a single unit in which students build the archive of primary source materials, or may extend the lesson to a year-long project by including units in which students create Web pages and lesson plans based on their archives.
